Fuel Additives / Do They Work ?

Fuel Additives have become very popular and claim to improve your gas mileage, clean your injectors, give
you more horsepower etc., etc., etc. or should I say Blah, Blah, Blah !

I have used some of these products myself with little or no results. Like pouring money down a drain.

About 18 months ago we started noticing a problem with some of the fuel injectors we where servicing.
The filters in the injectors where Brittle, Crumbly or even completely  gone.
The injectors are leaking because without the filters trash gets inside and they become stuck open.

We started calling our customers and asking questions. Come to find out, all the customers where using some
type of Fuel Additive. The fuel additives are eating up the filters inside the injectors.

This information had already been given to us by our Fuel Injector parts supplier. In fact they had told us
to tell  all our customers to stop using Additives because of this problem.
They have been in this business for 25 years, must know something about it !

Our findings are not scientific, approved by any government office or meant to beat up any oil or chemical company.
We are just giving out information about what we have found out and what we think does not work.

When the bottle of Chemical cleaner can change the filter in the Fuel Injector we might have a
different opinion about Additives.............
Till then.....
Save your Money !
Dont use them.....................
